LEISURE return with ethereal new single ‘Slipping Away’

Critically acclaimed New Zealand band LEISURE shares their brand new single ‘Slipping Away’, out now via Nettwerk.

A delicate, weightless track, ‘Slipping Away’ glides by effortlessly, combining the soaring lead vocal with warm, relaxed instrumentation.

“‘Slipping Away’ comes from a place of good intention,” the band explain. “Knowing you need to step up and be better for the ones you love despite on-going challenges. Musically we based the song around the guitar riff which was a first for us.”

LEISURE’s latest serving marks their first release since last year’s sophomore album TWISTER, a freeform exploration into pop psychedelia, smooth R&B and big room modern soul music that showcased the group’s rich musical talents in their entirety. 2019 also saw the New Zealanders successfully complete a European tour, which included sold-out dates in London and Berlin as well as a debut double performance at Brighton’s The Great Escape.

Forming in 2015 during a spontaneous trip up to New Zealand’s west coast, LEISURE quickly gained attention with their self-titled debut album. Released in 2016, LEISURE peaked at #2 in the NZ charts and received worldwide critical acclaim. The album also included a notable collaboration, ‘Nobody’ with US rapper GoldLink.

With everything underpinned by their genuine friendship and democratic writing process, ensuring LEISURE consistently deliver a steady stream of blissed-out homage to laidback pleasure. After all, life in the slow lane has legs – as this band proves. Now with over 150 million streams to their name, they’re going the distance, at their own pace, in their own way.

The first release after a brief hiatus, ‘Slipping Away’ sees LEISURE move into a new creative chapter.
